Joshua Wilson Milley, age 84 of Lowell, MI, went to be with his Lord and Savior on Thursday July 2, 2020. Joshua was born in Burnt Point, Newfoundland and lived there until he became a fisherman in Labrador. He eventually went to Toronto, Ontario where he met his future wife through mutual friends. He was married 54 years to his wife Dianne (McIntosh). Together they had three sons, David (Dawn), Andrew and Jonathon; one daughter, Elizabeth (Aaron) Steppke; six grandchildren, Jacob, Savannah, Abigail, McKenzie, Tyler, and Laura. He has a surviving sister, Lillian Reynolds; cousin, Angus Milley, and several nieces and nephews. Joshua loved to work with wood and could fix just about anything. He was a valuable employee at OvenFresh and worked there until forced to retire by an accident. He enjoyed traveling, southern gospel music concerts and his grandchildren when he was not in his workshop. The family will receive visitors Monday July 6, 2020 at 10am with Celebration of Joshua’s life at 11am at First Baptist Church of Lowell, 2275 West Main St., Lowell, MI 49331. Pastor Jon Pickens officiating. Memorial contributions may be made to Alpha Women’s Center of Lowell, 519 E. Main St., Lowell, MI 49331.
Dianne & family, on behalf of Angus’s sisters and brother, we extend our deepest condolences to you and your family. Wils was more than a cousin
to Angus. They were more like brothers who shared a great love for their
Newfoundland home. They shared many laughs, jokes, reminisced their
childhood days living in NL. and shared many NL. traditional meals cooked
by Angus. We know Angus will miss him. May precious memories help you and your family at this difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, God Bless.
Sisters: Christine (Gerry), Lynette (Wade); Vivian (Jack); Shirley (Lloyd);
Brother: Keith (Beverley) and famiiies.
